Van car: The most popular types
Some might say, a van is a van. However, here at Car Rental Holland, we believe that there are specific vans for certain specific needs. Because of that we have made sure that we can offer the right van for every purpose. Below you will find a short list of the most popular vans and what people use them for.
These are your average, go-to vans. When people say van, they say panel van. Common brands are the Volkswagen Transporter and Opel Vivaro. They are usually available in multiple roof-heights as well as wheelbase lengths. Those who need the space of a van but don’t have any additional requirements usually choose a panel van car rental.
The minibus is a van that is perfect for travelling with larger groups of people. The minibus van car rentals are available with a minimum of about 8 seats, but can also be rented to fit up to 16 people. You can fit almost your entire family in this vehicle and still travel comfortably.
This type of van has 4×4 drive which means it does well in rough conditions. Sometimes it is used by people who don’t really want a heavy duty pickup but still want to be reasonably capable off-road. More often, this type of van car rental is used to have a reliable vehicle capable of carrying a larger than average load during snowy or icy conditions. If you plan on needing this vehicle, we’ve got you covered!
Box vans are the workhorses among vans. The front cabin usually fits 3 or 4 people and the cargo part in the back is up to twice as large as that of a panel van. The most prominent reason for renting one of these is because people emigrate to the Netherlands. They need a way to transport their furniture and other household effects to their new home and the box van does that job perfectly.
When you need a van but don’t have any excessive demands for it, a city van might be perfect for you. It’s a tad bit smaller than a panel van but still offers way more space than a regular car.
For those who need a van but care about the environment, an electric van is the way to go. These have been developed to a very decent standard an can be expected to meet any demands you would have had for a panel van just as well.
